Iran Israel Conflict Coming, More Voter Fraud, Dems 2018 Lies

By Greg Hunter’s (WNW 328 3.30.18) 

Iran and Israel are moving closer to armed conflict. It was reported this week that two Israeli jets have been flying in Iran’s airspace.  No attacks were made against Iran, but what were those jets doing there?  Are they mapping out areas to attack Iran’s nuclear program?  The jets are U.S. made stealth F35s and were in and out totally undetected by Iranian radar and Russian radar in Syria.  There is also going to be a big protest this weekend going into the Jewish Passover Holiday on the Gaza/Israeli border.  Many are worried Hamas terrorists will use this protest as cover to attack Israel.

There is a landmark case being heard in Texas over voter fraud. This case could start a major examination nationwide of voting machines and records to validate electronic voting machines.  The case is being brought by Dr. Laura Pressley, who has been making her case to the people in Texas by giving more than 180 presentations on voter fraud.

Democrats have nothing to run on in 2018 mid-term elections. The most recent use of high school kids to promote the repeal of the Second Amendment has backfired.  A new poll says 80% of citizens do NOT want the Second Amendment repealed.  Not even 40% of all Democrats want it repealed.  All the Dems have to run on are lies and fraud.  The Party does not have a single issue that helps everyday Americans.

    Breaking: Stormy Daniels Allegedly Denied Trump Affair

    • Collateral Damage

      I have entered a ‘Time Capsule’ episode of the Twilight Zone this weekend. I started reading a little hardback book, a compendium of Saturday Evening Post articles from the 1950’s.

      Two impressions struck me immediately:

      1) The attention span of the average reader 70-years ago was much longer than our attention spans today. Remember in it’s time, the Saturday Evening Post was a widely popular magazines, and,

      2) The Public was invited to THINK! They were invited to contemplate thought-provoking subjects in-depth, analytically and using logic!

      Damn, it was disconcerting!

      On one hand it was extremely refreshing to see a mainstream media publication invite the public to think analytically (at the same time, it was alarming to know that mainstream media seldom does this anymore). Also, it was extremely disturbing to have first-hand evidence of the incredible decline in Public Discourse, and the public’s ability to think, when comparing 2018, to that of 1950s.

      For instance, I heard a report this weekend that David Hogg, who has been grabbing every opportunity that he can get to push repeal of the 2nd Amendment, at the same time claim that Trump was a modern-day Hitler. Now, from a logical point of view, does it make any sense at all for someone to push for a complete ban on guns while at the same time claim that the US is a Trump led dictatorship?

      Personally, I think that someone who can espouse these two ideas simultaneously must have mush for brains! And interestingly enough, the news outlet airing his statements, never once pointed out the illogic in his positions. Instead they served it up for maximum public consumption.

      Two brief excerpts from the compiled essays to follow.

      I wish all of you a blessed Easter weekend, and peace.



      • Collateral Damage

        From a 1950’s essay, “Drugs That Shape Men’s Minds”, by Aldous Huxley.

        Now let us consider another kind of drug – still undiscovered, but probably just around the corner – a drug capable of making people feel happy in situations we here they would normally feel miserable. Such a drug would be a blessing but a blessing fraught with grave dangers. By making harmless chemical euphoria freely available, a dictator could reconcile an entire population to a state to which self-respecting human beings ought not to be reconciled. Despots have always found it necessary to supplement force by political or religious propaganda. In this sense, the pen is mightier than the sword. But mightier than either the sword or the pen, is the pill. In mental hospitals it has been found that chemical restraint is far more effective than straitjackets or psychiatry. The dictatorships of tomorrow will deprive men of their freedom but will give them in exchange a happiness none the less real, as a subjective experience, for being chemically induced. The pursuit of happiness is one of the tradition rights of man; unfortunately, the achievement of happiness may turn out to be incompatible with another of man’s rights – namely, liberty.

        Interestingly, I never heard the last administration make one peep about the current opioid crisis. Trump has been talking about it.

        • zTeve.0

          Well said Aldous – have heard of you but didn’t know you were a fan of USAwatchdog.
          Some estimate 500,000 Opioid deaths in the next 10yrs – many will be young kids and young parents – it is a problem 200 x bigger than school shootings. Great that Trump is directing some energy that way, hope they come up with some effective strategies

  2. Maria das Santos

    Thanks Mr Hunter,a Happy and Blessed Easter-Christ is Risen.
    Here in the UK our media and society are desperately doing a really good job in covering up the real message of Easter,the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,anything but anything other than true Christianity litters the government backed media.Even “Allah is Gay”is better that Christ is Risen according to our media.All these media organisations are well populated by well connected and well educated people who cannot plead ignorance.Thankfully they,the media,are dying and so many other alternatives now exist that the government enforced source is a joke for coverage for anything serious.
    Here the economy for real people sucks terribly,the struggles of ordinary people go unnoticed,but the elite are partying whilst we “deplorables”google eyed look on .Young people emerging from so called universities sit atop debt and little well paying job prospects and struggle to maintain a home.Meanwhile the undercover police prowling London has increased significantly whilst our government are targeting foreign money for tax purposes.As one American gentleman has assured me,owning a home in London is likely to be a liability soon.
    Living most of my week on the West side of Wimbledon Common surrounded by professional types who have the good grace to sneer at my husband and myself as we are deemed to have a peasant income,yet it is astonishing how many of their house staff tell me about their bosses and their finances,many are carrying crushing debt as they drive their horrendously expensive cars to work.These bosses have imported labour from around the world to look after their homes,this imported labour is young mostly female and abused.Many are working seven day weeks paid less than a pound per hour and their money withheld until they leave their employers ,shockingly they are billed for food,heating and so much more as they look after these modest homes,some are not so modest.Many of these bosses hide behind the fig leaf of religion so are untouchable,their pretence is powerful and sometimes brutal.But of course this is just a talk over coffee by the peasant imported labour who need a little respite.
    Still the Dow refuses to break higher as does Gold.Europe and the Euro are exhibiting their true fascist faces arresting opposition politicians because they have made a mess of the economy from the start.
    Meanwhile our UK government have decided to pick a fight with bruiser Russia expecting the USA to be at their back .So when you Americans send your children into an European nuclear wasteland to die for the glory of British elites will you be happy to have done so?

      “The Lessons of the Past”, By Edith Hamilton

      Are there permanent truths that we can learn from history which are forever important for the present? We have a great civilization to save – or to lose. There is a marked difference between the writers of the past and the writers of today. Clear thinking is not a characteristic that distinguishes our literature today. We are more and more caught up by the unintelligible. People like it. This argues an inability to think or almost as bad, a disinclination to think. The Greeks had a passion for thinking things out and they loved unclouded clarity of statement as well as thought. They were able to put an idea in an astonishingly small number of words without loosing a particle of intelligibility. The children were taught to think. The same was true of politics, they thought that out too, from the beginning, and they gave all the boys a training to fit them to be thinking citizens of a free state.

      A reflective Roman traveling in Greece in the second century AD said, ‘None ever throve under democracy save the Athenians; they had sane self-control and were law-abiding.’ That is what Athenian education aimed at, to produce men who were able to maintain a self-governed state because they were self-governed, self-controlled, self-reliant. The Athenians, in their dangerous world, needed to be a nation of independent men who could take responsibility, and they taught their children accordingly.

      They loved the things of the mind, but they did not shrink from hardship. Thought did not cause them to hesitate; it clarified the road to action. They were free because of willing obedience to the law, not only the written, but still more the unwritten, kindness and compassion and unselfishness and the many qualities which cannot be enforced which depend on a man’s free choice but without which man cannot live together.

      If there ever is to be a truly good and great and enduring republic it must be along these lines. The Greeks can help us, help us as no other people can to see how freedom is won and how it is lost.

      • This sceptred Isle

        1) Even then the Athenian form of democracy was limited only to a certain section of society.
        2) Literature today is concerned either entirely with entertainment or propaganda and misdirection. Clarity comes with truth.

    Interesting quotes from the Pope.

    Scalfari, 93, in his fifth interview of Pope Francis published in La Repubblica, asked what happened to ‘bad souls’ after their bodies died.
    ‘They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear,’ he quoted the Pope as replying.

    ‘There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.’

    • This sceptred Isle

      The abomination of the Catholic Church tried its best to bring about hell on earth.

      • Greg Hunter

        Not true TSI. The Catholic Church lasted for 2,000 years because it’s doctrine is true. Jesus was Son of God, He was born of the Virgin Mary, Died for our sins in a blood sacrifice to wash away the sins of the world, Rose again on the third day, and Will come again to judge the living and the dead. Those are the 5 pillars of the Catholic faith, and they are spot on–the current Pope–not so much.

        • Charles H


          TsI makes a good point. There is more than proper doctrine to consider. “Ye must be born again”… speaks to a live birth into God’s family: anything which comes up short of this – isn’t of God. There is a heart condition where one must believe and trust exclusively in the work and Person of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible. That which teaches competing authority, such as Mary worship – disqualifies even correct faith toward God. If the Pope is believed to be the vicar of Christ – this disqualifies believing even the true doctrines: this presents two masters. Multitudes make good professions in Christ; but are trusting “the Church” to get them not Heaven: I say this does not pass muster with God, Who sees the heart. Spiritually speaking: “close, but no cigar” is as good as the devil’s workshop.

          • Bradley C. Beyer

            Very good point Charles H. The catholic church has distorted the truth for hundreds of years. Thus the reformation. We are not the judges of anyone though but should point out error and I agree with you. I have shed any denominational group and stick to what the Bible says only. This even brings up the credibility of these so called Christian Holidays we celebrate. Nowhere is it mentioned to do this in the Bible other than the Communion that I know of. My belief is it is Passover we should observe. It is my hope that Christ’s Church can soon become of One Faith and this denominational fallacy fades away. “A House divided cannot stand” is the saying that always comes to mind.

            • William Stanley

              Bradley: Why would the Christian holidays like Easter not be worthy of celebration even if not mentioned in the Bible as long as they are not actually contrary to and subversive of the teachings of Christ? It seems to me that it would take quite a stretch of logic and imagination to make such a claim. Furthermore, why would “Pagan roots” (even if true) be a disqualification for what later became celebrations of Christ, his message and his meaning?
              Of course, all of this raises the question of what Christ’s message and meaning is. Nevertheless, I find it ironic and disturbing that different conclusions about that question sometimes becomes a source of discord and acrimony.

    Russian Missile Drill Planned With 10,000 Troops On “Highest Combat Alert” After Expulsions

    by Tyler Durden
    Fri, 03/30/2018 – 03:00

    In what the Defense Ministry of Russia has dubbed “command and staff exercises,” three missile armies of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force – comprising of more than 10,000 troops have been ordered to go on the “highest combat alert,” amid an unprecedented political assault via the United States and the European Union to expel countless Russian diplomats.

  7. Wondan Valley girl

    Already, the New Cold War between Washington and Moscow is more dangerous than the last – and the Western political-elite/media seem not to care. As the West reprimands Russia for the nerve agent attack in the United Kingdom with zero evidence released to the public for examination; we must recognize that the Western political-elite/media pose a severe threat for humanity, as their dreams of nuclear war with Russia could soon become a reality.

    And add to this that President Trump has reportedly challenged Putin to a new arms race.
    The world is preparing for war, are you?

  8. MAL

    Hi Greg,
    The FBI admitted that they could have prevented the Parkland shooting and then said that they had no grounds to get face book to identify the person who posted the threats to commit mass murder and become a “professional school shooter”. That statement disgusted me. I don’t believe that the FBI believed they had no grounds and Cruz used his real name when he made the posts.. A second grader would have known better. They and the Broward County Sheriff allowed this to happen. In his book Terror Factory Trevor Aaronson noted that since 911 more than 200 “terrorist” plots were engineered by the FBI using undercover agents and paid they could then arrest the targets who were usually selected based on Face Book posts and low IQ’s. Some of these informants received $50,000 bonuses if the target was convicted.

    • William Stanley

      Mal: As with many things, we can paint too broadly when it comes to “the” FBI. Indeed, I think the FBI has been unfairly tarred in some incidents (perhaps, to some extent, even the Parkland shooting) even though it has apparently acted inappropriately or criminally in others, e.g. those that you mentioned as well as the killing of LaVoy Finicum in the Oregon wildlife-refuge shooting, and the FBI-personnel involvement in the anti-Trump-related treason. For example, it appears to me that the Broward County sheriff department’s failure to engage the shooter accounts for at least half the deaths at Parkland: the shooting went on for some six minutes; yet in a more recent incident elsewhere the school safety officer engaged and shut down a shooter in about a minute with little or no (I haven’t followed up on that case) loss of life. So that shooting didn’t qualify as a “mass” shooting and received relatively little attention. Armed teachers may have been able to shut down both attacks even more quickly. The successes are ignored, even as the failures are turned into political opportunities. Who notices the “mass” shootings and other crimes that don’t happen because the locales are not gun-free zones or when good guys with guns dissuade or stop bad guys with guns or other weapons?
      Our over-reliance on systems, experts, and specialists (the Progressive ideology) has led to an erosion of the will, capability, and common sense to act on our own when the situation demands it. This extends even to the once supposed “experts” like the police, who now too often rely on greater experts, i.e., SWAT to carry out arrest warrants and engage dangerous miscreants.
      Concerning the FBI, I know for a fact that field agents have (often?) been actively impeded in preventing killings by the parents of soon-to-be killers, and even district attorneys or judges who demand unreasonably high “probable cause” for obtaining search warrants — even as they ignore the prior threats of violence uttered by the soon-to-be murderers and the in-person assessments by highly-trained field agents who interacted with, witnessed the demeanor, and assessed the mental states of the soon-to-be killers.
      I also know for a fact, that the the MSM sometimes (always?) fails to fully report the surrounding circumstances of incidents that do not support the mainstream “narrative.”

  10. David

    Question: How did the Israelis fly F-35 aircraft from Israel to Iran (including supposedly Bandar Abbas, Esfahan, and Shiraz) without/without refueling? Even with external tanks? If the Israelis did fly over Iran, they almost certainly refueled somewhere. The claim by the Kuwaiti paper that these fighters can travel to Iran twice without refueling is simply false.

    I would like to know who is behind the Kuwaiti story, their motivation for printing it, and the intended audience. The Kuwaiti article doesn’t pass the “smell” test. Sorry.

    • Chip

      The US had refuelers stationed in the UAE when I was in the ME… Chip

      David: Interesting point about the refueling.

    Thank you Greg, great program. I look forward to your weekly wrap-ups to give me some sence of clarity and hope in all this mess we are enduring. I recall Nancy Pelosie saying something to the effect that the constitution was a living and movable document..Well what is movable in my little world is the violent and disheartenig garbage TV programs as well as the so called news which is nothing more than brain washing and advertisements that are doing the same. This week I disconnected my so called entertainment television programs on my TV line up. If I want to see a show, I’ll stream and, if I want news I have you and the internet.

  13. Arthur Barnes

    Greg, the problem of Iran is that the Obama-Kerry so-called nuclear “deal” didn’t stop
    the Iranians from going forward with their nuclear program, it just put a lot of conditions precedent and other barriers up so that inspections would not detect the on-going program(s). Israel has stated before that they will not tolerate a nuclear Iran, this is not new, so yea Greg, if Iran is very close to its goal I suspect an attack on its nuclear facilities. Further, it was largely reported when the “deal” was made that Israel did not sign off on it and Israel informed the State Department, aka Kerry & his boss Obama that they would not hold off if the Iranians continued to prefect their nuclear capacities. Basically, that so-called deal just was a ruse to prevent & stall Israel from taking out the nuclear facilities at that time; which it did and it really strained the U.S. and Israel relationship. Trump may well turn his attention to Iran when the N. Korea situation stabilizes. Frankly, we still owe the Iranian Government a little comeuppance
    for their treatment of our citizens in 1979; they have never apologized for their attack on our embassy and the taking of hostages; so, in my mind, the U.S. should not only withdraw from the non-signed “deal” but give Israel a green flag to take the facilities out.

      “Frankly, we still owe the Iranian Government a little comeuppance

      As a British citizen I sure hope the world is not keeping score on the treatment of foreign citizens.

      • William Stanley

        TSI: Ditto. Our two countries have much to answer for in the ME — even if, as individuals, we had little control about what was done in our names. Nevertheless, I feel guilty for taking as long as I did to wake up because, to some degree, to remain ignorant of reality is a choice and, therefore, a test of character.

  14. Russ

    Thanks Greg, good perspective on the week’s happenings. Happy Easter to you also.

    In other news, the narrative keeps changing on how the Skripals (Russians living in the UK) were poisoned. They supposedly received a non-lethal dose of the Novichok nerve agent … or was it something else, after all they aren’t dead and Novichok is supposedly deadlier than VX or Sarin. Don’t know, haven’t seen anything definitive.

    So the latest article re the Skripals on ZH is…
    “Location, Location, And Nerve Agents”
    It’s a tad tongue in cheek, but serious. Everybody piling on Russia …
    … “We know Facebook is trying to screw with your brains. Well, they’re not the only ones. Your government -and ‘intelligence’ services- want the monopoly on that, too.
    I can not make this a definitive, or final, or complete story. Because nobody can. But I can tell you this: if you think that Russia or God forbid Putin, ‘poisoned’ the Skripals, you’re so wrong you’re beyond salvation.
    Not because it may or may not be true, but because you have seen no evidence. And you still go with it.”…

    Have a great weekend.

    • Russ

      … regarding that/those Israeli F-35(s) that flew over Iran … Did they? We have the report from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida, but the F-35 is a stealth aircraft so there is no radar evidence that it actually happened. How did Al-Jarida get the information; is that an Israeli narrative plant? Really, how did the Kuwaiti press know?

      That said, if I was an Israeli Air Force General planning an airstrike into Iran, I might want to see if the F-35 can get in and out of Iran undetected, so the narrative makes sense. But in the world of fake news in which we live, how can we ever know for sure … we can’t.

      You can’t plant fake news if no one believes the narrative because of all the fake news. MSM credibility is gone — poof.

  16. Paul ...

    Bolton is on the job a few days and already he has Israel flying jets into Iran’s air space … is it to map out areas to attack Iran’s “shutdown nuclear program”? … I think not … it is more likely part of Trump’s way of “negotiating a better deal” with Iran by letting loose an “anti-Iran” warmonger on them … the same way he had Tillerson back the plan to sell the Ukraine our Javelin anti-tank missiles to fight the Russian backed separatists … once Trump gets the best deal he can … he will get rid of Bolton the same way he got rid of Tillerson … this is pure conjecture on my part … but it is the only way for me to “still believe” Trump has not been made into a Chump by the warmongering neocons who need continual unending wars to keep the money rolling into their deep state pockets!!

    Hi Greg, in your Weekly News Wrap-Up today you mentioned a possible Israel/Iran conflict, do you have any idea how that would pan out, sounds like it could end up being a huge mess if many other players get involved. I’ve tried to think it through but I can’t work it out. If you are connected with a good military strategist maybe it would be a good time to get them on. Love the show and I hope you have a Happy Easter, regards, Nigel

      It could turn into WWIII because of the relationship that Iran has with Russia and China.

      • This sceptred Isle

        And Turkey has reportedly refused to eject Russian diplomats in a clear break with its Nato allies.

        America’s geographical isolation served it well during the 20th century as it escaped the ravages of the world wars. However, in the 21st century, this isolation may well prove to be an impediment as the Persians, Ottomans, Russians and Chinese will occupy the strategic positions in Eurasia as economic power swings eastwards. Let’s see how loyal America’s allies, such as Saudi Arabia and Israel are in this environment.

    • Paul ...

      Nigel … one does not have to be a military strategist to figure this out … say Iran build’s 100 nuclear weapons … Israel will still have three(3) times as many … so they can keep Iran “in control” the same way the US, Russia and China “won’t start anything” because it will mean “mutual assured destruction” … so why do we need “another war” (between Israel and Iran) to squander yet more lives in the nuclear war that will likely result as Iran’s allies Russia and China step in to defend them … Israel has “so many nuclear weapons” do we really need to get into “a world war” that will probably kill millions of women and children … over Iran getting a few bombs it can never use anyway … because it will mean “assured destruction of the entire Iranian Nation” by Israel which has overwhelming nuclear superiority!!

      • Paul ...

        The only Biblical reason I can see for Israel (armed like Goliath) to be “worried” about Iran (armed like David) … is the Bible story where David with only “a stone” was able to defeat “a fully armed” Goliath … is this why those throwing stones must be shot in the head?? … come on … Iran is not the Nation God always favors and helps to defeat its enemies (Israel is) … so why be so paranoid?? … unless … Israel feels it has strayed so far away from God’s Ten Commandments it is concerned about exactly who God will favor in a fight!!

        • Paul ...

          Imagine … how ludicrous it would have looked to the people back then … if the United States existed back at the time of David and Goliath … and came to the aid of “fully armed” Goliath “… with heavy armor and sword in hand” to help Goliath kill David (who had only a sling and stone) … I think that is how many in the world look at the current situation between Israel and Iran today!

        • Greg Hunter

          Iran is a county of nearly 80 million. Israel has a population of about 8 million. Iran has a modern military and protective agreements with China, Russia and North Korea. What in the heck are you talking about????????

      Iran is not the Israeli target.
      Saudi Arabia is.
      If any thing to be done against Iran is just to unleash the latter on Saudi Arabia.

      ultimately Saudi Arabia.

      • Paul ...

        By the Pope taking away Hell he is effectively taking away Satan … which puts him a step away from taking away God … does the Pope think that by taking away the Devil … evil will be removed from our world?? … is he saying that “thou can murder”, “thou can steal”, “thou can perform perverted sex with children”, etc., etc. and that those sins are simply washed away “as nothing”??? … is he is giving the “green light” to the globalists “to commit mass murder” on a scale a thousand times greater then Hitler?? (so as to bring Earth’s population down to 500,000 as they say they want to do?) … and when the Pope finishes his job of getting rid of the concept of Satan, God and Religion from human conscientiousness for these evil commie atheists … does the Pope think they will allow him to live? … No! … he too will be rubbed out as the “last Pope” on Earth!!

    I fail to understand how long the United States can continue to print money once we loose reserve currency status.

    Those that continue to believe that a 2.5 GDP can continue to support 125 trillion dollars in unfounded liabilities without money creation are delusional. The same people said China would never get reserve currency status from the IMF. Wrong. The same people said China would never launch their own gold exchange. Wrong. The same people said that China would never have a petro yuan. Wrong. I guess some people need to have a truck dropped on them before reality sets in. That’s coming.

    • Greg Hunter


      And just think what happens when the world widely accepts the idea that there is already $21 trillion in “missing” money in the DOD and HUD alone. Dollar = confetti. (and also Treasuries) Rob Kirby talks about this in the Early Sunday Release.


    • Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

      My 2 cents worth on the recent reserve currency developments… from the Antipodes.

      The reign of ‘King Dollar’ as the unchallenged world reserve currency took a wee bit of a knock last week with the opening of the Shanghai oil futures trading platform. Days later China announced it will be paying for its oil imports with yuan rather than greenbacks.

      This news is not just about the petrodollar but very much about reserve currency status as well. History tells us that global reserve currencies don’t last forever. The pound sterling looked to be invincible during the period of time ‘where the sun never set on the British Empire’…except it did.

      Portugal had their run of 80 years from 1450, then Spain for 110 years, Holland 80 years, France 95 years, before Britain enjoyed the privilege for some 105 years.
      The US dollar has been the official reserve currency since 1944 [74 years] but add to that the fact that it was commonly used in trade since the 1920’s and that works out at more like 90 plus years as a major player…that is around about the historical average reign.

      Recent events on the surface seem to be more about the demise of the petrodollar than anything else but given that annual oil trade is roughly $14 trillion and that the dollar is used in 99% of the trade, this is a very big deal not just for the petrodollar but in world reserve currency stakes as well.

      My call… the US$ will be the last sovereign reserve currency to exist and these recent events are the writing on the wall for it to gradually lose its status.

      Methinks the new system will be one where a number of currencies share a stake as a reserve currency, either by no organised system of control and based on market perceived individual merit, or by an organised system [by the IMF] like a basket of currencies and using SDRs [special drawing rights] which are an international monetary currency for use in trade.

      Bring it on… with one country enjoying overwhelming dominance in reserve currency status it is glaringly apparent to me that it becomes a ticket to indulge in extremely bad behaviour…not the least of which enables the build-up ridiculous debt and to enjoy the seemingly endless ability to sell that debt.

      If you can perpetually sell your debt there is the likely corollary that you will be more likely to be reckless in your spending behaviour. Along the way, you might even decide that you need 1000 military bases around the world and that your ‘defence’ budget really should be equal to your next 8-10 ‘adversaries’ spends combined….sort of like the modern-day equivalent of the Roman Empire…brings to mind the term ‘overreach’ doesn’t it…how about disastrous overreach…that might be a more accurate description.

      The other side of the coin to this advantage is the ‘Triffin Dilemma’ where the incumbent country by definition runs continuous trade deficits which would eventually reduce its currency’s use in international markets…ie supply would increase without downward revision of the reserve currency. This is what is happening at the moment and in all fairness, it does make it difficult for US exporters to compete on the world market.

      All in all, the sooner the greenback loses its reserve status the better it is likely to be for humanity and in the long run for the US as well..the demise of the petrodollar should also be welcomed and dare I say it, celebrated. You never know, with all of the above coming to pass, it might lead to significantly less warfare.

      These events are the proverbial horror of horrors for Washington and the Deep State which incidentally still calls most of the shots. You never know as a result of all of this there exists the distinct ‘danger’ that peace might even break out.
      Now there’s a novel idea!

      Happy Easter

        having the world currency seems like a poisoned chalice. Perhaps the Chinese will seek a compromise with a basket of currencies and commodities as a reserve currency.
